Straight from Brooklyn, Arthur Ashin – or Autre Ne Veut – has been making sweet and sexy music since he debuted back in 2010 with a self-titled LP that received an overall positive reception from music critics. This time around, he’s back with a soulful gem of track titled “Counting” from his 2013 release Anxiety.
“Counting” is a smooth R&B song the conjures a lot of feelings through the emotive lyrics, lo-fi electronics and lush falsetto comparable to Tom Krell of How to Dress Well. You can tell that Ashin is earnest in all that he sings about – whether he is pleading about love, death or everything in-between, it’s clear that it’s heartfelt and driven by a certain mood.
This song honestly gets me pretty excited to see what Autre Ne Veut will deliver in the future, and my guess is that if any of it is as good as this track is, we’re in for some smooth, sexy sailing from here on out.
